Gogglebox’s Dave and Shirley joke they look like gangsters in extraordinary throwback snap from their 20s


GOOGLEBOX stars Dave and Shirley Griffiths are almost unrecognisable in an old snap from when they were in their 20s.

The Welsh couple, who are now in their late 60s, joked that they looked like a couple of gangsters in a Twitter picture.

They shared the picture on their joint Twitter account writing: "Look like something out of the sopranos 🥲🥲🥲."

The pair are seen cosying up together over a table heaving with pints of lager.

And when a fan asked how old they were in the snap they replied: 'About 25 and full of it."

The couple are among the biggest stars of the present line-up of people on Gogglebox, alongside Sophie and Pete and Lee and Jenny.

Dave, famous for the uncomfortable-looking way he sprawls over the sofa, are a regular couple from Caerphilly, Wales.

The pair have been married for 45 years - and spent nearly ten of those on Gogglebox. He works as a cleaner while she has a job in retail.

She astonished fans last month by revealing she had turned 66 - blowing out the candles on her birthday cake.

They have shared amazing old pictures of themselves before, sharing a snap from their wedding day.

Dave cheekily captioned the snap in November: "45years tomorrow, this girl wished upon a star and her dreams came true."
